I have a 2001 silverado 1500. The service engine light has been on for a while but never gave a code. Its now flashing while driving and idling really rough. Is it a misfire causing this?

There are many things that can cause you problem. The flashing light indicates "open loop" or "limp mode". This is the computer's last effort to keep the vehicle running and maintenance must be performed ASAP. I can assure you that if you are in limp mode there WILL be some code(s) set in the computer. Have them read and repair accordingly.

With most Chrysler ECM, They are very specific. You will want to compare the product codes on each computer. In some cases the ECM can be flashed to a specific vehicle. But if the codes are the flash codes are the same, you should be good to go.

I bought a 2000 dodge ram 1500 5.9 it will not shift out of frist i bought a new computer and it didnt work i also bought a new kick down cable it didnt work it kinda acts like the altanater is only...

You need to check the out put speed sensor (OSS). This is a 2 wire magnetic pick up sensor and is used to measure output speed shaft. This is used to determine proper govenor PSI. This sensor is prone to internal failure and loose ground connection. Here are the location the output is located on the left rear trans. On 4X4 it will be before transfercase. Also If you change ECM put the old one back they have a security vin installed and it will need to be flashed plus it wont match and youll get weird drivability results. Let me know we can fix this together.

How hard is it to install pickup coil in the distributor of a 2001 dodge ram 1500 pickup.

The pick-up coil/stator is easily replaced in a dodge distributor, and once you have removed the distributor cap and the ignition rotor, then just dis-connect the wire connector from the pick-up coil/stator and lift it straight up and out of the distributor, and the distributor does not have to be removed or dis-assembled to replace the pick-up coil/stator. There are two alignment tabs on the pick-up coil/stator that will match up with the distributor cap when the pick-up coil/stator is properly installed. Here are two images to help assist you.

1999 dodge ram 1500 5.2L timing,plug gap,firing order

You will find the spark plug gap and timing specifications listed on the vehicles emission label under the hood, and those specifications are the ones to be used on that vehicle and engine for that year, and no other specifications should ever take precedence over the specifications listed on the vehicles emission control label. Here is the firing order diagram for that engine, let me know if you require any further assistance, and I an curious as to how you got taken for $2,000.

Legally, you can not put an older motor into a newer vehicle due to emissions laws. You can always put a newer engine (usually manufactured to meet newer emissions specs) into an older vehicle, but not vice-versa. There's issues with the computer and vin # when you change from one factory engine to a different type as well.

I need a electrical/wiring diagram for a 2001 Dodge Dakota 4WD, 3.9L V6, 2 door regular cab

For the entire Vehicle? Then go to They have the most extensive and complete wiring diagrams I have ever seen or used. Cost is approximately $25 for a full 12-month subscription. The Haynes and Chilton Manuals only have "Generic" wiring diagrams, meaning they won't necessary match wire for wire to your specific vehicle. IF you know someone at a dealership service department or garage, ask them for copies of the specific area wiring diagrams you need. I do subscribe to alldatadiy and swear by them. The 12-month subscription is well worth the price. They have everything (plus more) you will ever need about your vehicle.
Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!
